The Segway a two-wheeled, self-balancing individual electric vehicle. This virtual lab aims at showing the importance of the digital control system, which is a computer embedded in the Segway and analyzing continuously the position and...Read more
This lab aims at helping students visualise Kepler's Second Law using true examples. Starting from acquired data from NASA on moving bodies in space: a satellite, a comet, and a moon; the lab plots their respective trajectories in 2D (x-y...Read more
The Radioactivity Lab examines the intensity of radiation over distance, demonstrating the effects of the inverse square law. Students investigate the intensity of radiation being emitted from a radioactive Strontium-90 source, by setting...Read more
In Splash students can create objects from object properties like mass, volume, and density, and drop these objects in a tube filled with a fluid. In some phases students can choose the density of the fluid themselves, allowing them to discover...Read more
Students are asked to make predictions on how galaxies form and evolve in the Universe. They will use the ‘Galaxy Crash’ tool to simulate the evolution of 2 disc galaxies over time, and see if the results match their predictions.
A computer interactive developed for the Microcosm exhibition at CERN introducing the workings of a particle accelerator like the Large Hadron Collider. Users of the interactive discover how, for example, protons are accelerated using...Read more
